Rip has been a large part of our trade discusions.. "gotta get younger"... and so on. Maybe he's not the right one to be moved (idea soon to be obsolete with the deadline passing)... I mean the guy has always performed over a course of a season... even in the playoffs he's been the one guy that shows (most times). Rip has the fire... he's willing to defend and pass the ball. The thing that keeps surfacing is his age and the need to move in a youthful direction... AND his boat anchor contract. Is he too old?... who is the best conditioned athlete on the team?... Ben?... or Rip?... the guy has a workout regiment that is incredible... just maybe he can defy logic and stay on top of his game for two more years... not three but two years as his contract will be the topic of GM's desire in 2011/12. We know he's been difficult to move as most teams are looking to build a future (along with the pending uncertainty of the new negotiations)... so possibly BG is the guy that could bring home the bigger prospect. We can talk about Tay on another thread.. but I'm 100% convinced that Daye will bring everything that Tay does... Tay is obviously the desirable contract to acquire.... it's always best to look at other teams needs first.
